  • Mammalian sulfoglycolipids are comprised of two major members, sulfatide (SO3-3Gal-ceramide) and seminolipid (SO3-3Gal-alkylacylglycerol). Sulfatide is abundant in the myelin sheath and seminolipid is expressed on the spermatogenic cells. Cerebroside sulfotransferase (CST)-deficient mice generated by gene targeting completely lack sulfatide and seminolipid all over the body. CST-null mice manifest some neurological disorders due to myelin dysfunction, an aberrant enhancement of oligodendrocyte… CONTINUE READING
